Katherine Heigl Out and About in LA

Posted on December 02, 2011

Boy, this gal really loves her big, unnecessary coats, doesn’t she?

The Los Angelenos will get pissed, but we laugh every time we see a celebrity dressed like this only to hear in the comments section “It got really cold in L.A. the other night! It went down into the FORTIES!” Bitches, please.  It’s not a bad look overall, but knee-high boots and an enormous scarf (or cowl neck; it’s unclear) are for seriously cold weather and considering her friend there is in a light sweater and a pair of flats, we doubt very much KHeig is wearing this outfit for any other reason than to get photographed.

And hey, if it makes you feel better, we laugh at the New Yorkers who swan around the city wearing both a tank top and a scarf.

      OK, just for clarification, most people in SoCal don’t wear things like this because “ZOMG, it’s SO freaking cold!” It’s because if we don’t wear it in weather that’s too warm for it, we don’t get to wear it at all :)

        Someone in Hollywood thought she’d be the *perfect* Stephanie Plum.  I admit, I never paid any attention to her at all until that notice.  Now I hate her with a venom one can only have for celebrities one know nothing about.  So, I’ll bring the whine.

      I always thought the tank top + scarf look was both pretty and confusing. I used to see dancers in my dance classes do this all the time.
      40s can be cold if you’re not used to it! But yeah, it looks like she’s camera-ready. The paparazzi probably drool at the chance to catch her looking terrible, which is probably worth more than yet another one looking fine.

      • Sobaika Mirza

        There’s a reason dancers wear shrugs and scarves – they need to keep their muscles warm (and don’t have enough body fat to do it) but wear tank tops, tights, etc. to show off proper lines and form.

        Did you see Black Swan? They’re all swathed in scarves and knits until the director walks in. It’s so they can show of their work best for him.

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          Same reason why pitchers wear a jacket in 80 degree weather then — keeps the muscles from cooling as much in between innings.

        • http://www.wordydoodles.com WordyDoodles

          Oh yeah, I took dance classes with a tough old school teacher. To stay warm, though, I’d be in a long sleeve full top and knit pants, covering my arms and legs, then remove them as I warmed up. I never got the girls who just wore scarves. Around their necks. It cracked me up a little, but it did look elegant! ;)

      So we’ve got a couple of things going on here. One is the look itself, the other is the context for that look. Separately we’re looking at a modest pass and a solid fail respectively. Together? Maybe a C+. I would be more impressed if I saw the occasional scuff or smudge as though the person in question had actually worn the item before. There’s something about the effort toward both casual and flawless that grates. I’m also tired of seeing water bottles carried everywhere. Are there no drinking fountains where these people go?

      • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

        I don’t know about in LA, but in Chicago, you wouldn’t want to use a drinking fountain if you saw one — that water is GROSS!!!  In fact, when I’m going downtown for the day, I always take enough bottled water for the full day, because I won’t even drink the stuff in restaurants; you can never be sure if they use bottled or filtered, and even filtered Chicago water is icky.

      Haha, you guys remind me of when I was living in Brazil. Whenever the temperature went down to like 60 degrees, people were busting out the big sweaters and walking around with their arms crossed and their teeth chattering, meanwhile I’d be in my shorts happy as a pig in shit saying you people are crazy! It’s gorgeous out! Go to Canada in February, then we’ll talk.

      Anyway, you laugh now but when that blizzard hits LA, Kathy will be prepared! Then we’ll see who’s laughing!

        Reminds me of where I live. The southern coast of South Carolina is littered with people who, no matter how warm it still is in October and November (yesterday it was 70 degrees out) feel the need to drag out their sweaters and heavy coats. I love seeing them in public, sweating and swearing, carrying their coats, while I ease through my day in shorts and, at most, a long sleeve shirt. 

        • Anonymous

          Sweating and Swearing was what I used to do almost every day when I lived down in Brazil. Oh how I hated those ridiculous 105 degree days. You would start schvitzing the second you stepped out of the shower. So glad to be back in New York where we can wear our tank tops and scarves so the tourists can laugh and point.

          I live in Charleston and the weather here right now just makes me angry. One day it’s like 80 and then it rains and it becomes 51 for the next week and so I do have to bundle up a little and I just wish it would stay one consistent temperature for a prolonged period of time. It’s like we only have 2 seasons: summer and fall (and then maybe something that resembles mild winter). I do have a heavier peacoat type of thing but I rarely have a need for it around here (I’ve discovered I only really need it for those days where it’s cold and raining at the same time which makes it a bit colder) and since I don’t really like long sleeved shirts that much I’ll throw on a sweater coat or a jacket and be fine. But you’re right, in the morning it’s certainly cold (though not unbearably so) and then typically by the afternoon the temperature has raised at least 10 degrees and you’ll be just fine.

          I’ve resolved to move somewhere with actual seasons.

          • Victoria Perry

            The fluctuating temps are annoying, but I suppose that is part of our state’s charm.  Layering is the only way to go.  I shamefully admit that I broke out the pea coat, scarf, hat, and boots on Halloween weekend.  A friend made fun of me, but then she thinks 80 degrees with 70% humidity is hot and I think it is perfect weather. So to each their own.

      • Kate Pearce

        I live in Nor California now and I have never worn a proper coat in the winter since I moved here from England as it rarely gets below freezing. Lots of people do though because they are fragile little flowers. I get a horrible shock when I go back to old Blighty in the winter though!

          I’m in Northern California too (and grew up in SF), and especially in the East Bay / Berkeley area, weather is a state of mind. Walking down the street you will see people in shorts and T-shirt, in get-ups like Heigl’s, and in minis, leggings and Ughs. Right now it’s 61 degrees out. I don’t feel that state of mind in NYC, Pennsylvania, or even LA.

            Never been as chilled through and through as I was in my inlaw’s uninsulated, poorly heated Berkeley Hills house. Every Christmas. For 35 years. And I have lived in the northeast my whole life with a few years in Michigan.

              Well that is true. The toilet seat in our apt is colder than anywhere when it is rainy and wintry. That can’t be overcome with state of mind  –once you are cold deep inside here it is too late. Still, though, it’s possible to WILL your way into the weather prior to that point, I have found. SF is much much colder. It’s the wind. Plus the fog. But mainly the relentless wind and that you’re not expecting it to be like that and you can’t steel yourself against it.

              OMG. The bathroom was THE WORST. The foggy mornings and evenings bugged me, too. I dislike East Bay weather pretty seriously. I haven’t experienced the SF weather. Sounds horrid.

              When I was in school at UCBerkeley a million years ago, there was a San Francisco girl in my dorm. She was staying in Berkeley for summer school and was excited that she would finally be able to buy some proper summer clothes. The temperature in the East Bay is much more similar to Los Angeles than San Francisco.

        Fall 1979, indeed! I wore similar looks while in high school and get a kick out of seeing that it’s back in style. I think she looks great, if not a bit too bundled.

      I’ll bet it’s a cowl scarf, they’re very on-trend (although, I don’t really get it). On another note, I think I own that sweater the other woman is wearing. It’s cashmere and I got it for $10 at the Ann Taylor outlet.

      I used work at a college campus in Georgia and once it hit 60 all the young women would break out their giant chunky knit sweaters and Ugg boot, paired with the shortest mini possible or the tightest, sheerest leggings.  Even they would be sweating by the middle of the afternoon when it 75. 

      But back to KH.  I like the boots, not so much the coat or sweater/scarf.

      When I lived in California, I was cold all the time. One thing is that the weather can change a lot from day to evening. Also, houses are not built right, I don’t why, it is often really cold inside. One last point in Ms. Heigl’s defense: when you are skinny, you get colder easier. That may be why she is dressed more warmly than her more normal sized friend.

      • MilaXX

        I never thought of her as particularly skinny. For an actress she seems pretty average sized.

        But…. where in CA? I’ve lived both in Northern and Southern. I agree that Northern CA was cold much of the time – once my heat came on in August – but this wasn’t at all true when I lived in LA. There’s a huge climate difference between the two.

        Also – yes, it sometimes gets chilly in LA at night – and there’s serious snow in the mountains (San Gabriels) just above town – but in the 2 years I lived there it was never cold enough in town during the day that I needed more than a jacket.

      • http://www.wordydoodles.com WordyDoodles

        It is totally true about houses and insulation in CA. I’ve lived here most of my life (except three years in during the biggest blizzards in DC! 2001 sucked in DC for many reasons, let me tell ya). And I found that houses on the East Coast and Midwest are generally much better insulated, so you don’t feel cold inside during winter. In CA, even during fall and spring, it can feel like there’s a constant chill indoors and out.

            I’ve been reading these responses and cackling my ass off. For one, I guess it’s not just we Canadians who obsess about the weather. For two, it’s currently -1 outside (about 30 degrees fahrenheit) and I’ve got my balcony door open right now. I had the heat on for two days this week because I was sick, and that’s it.

            Granted, I live in Toronto, which is the warmest area in Canada besides the west coast. So our big temperature issue is usually air conditioning in the summer, rather than heat in winter. And while insulation in a lot of buildings is piss poor (from a time when energy was cheap) there’s usually a decent central-heating system, so I guess we’ve got that over milder climes like Northern California.

            As for Ms Heigl, I like the outfit, but I’m sweating just looking at it, given how not cold I’m guessing it actually was in those photos.

      Apparently she spent most of her childhood in CT. I wonder if she just gets nostalgic for big sweaters and boots? But truly, this proves that KHeig should know better.

      Sidebar: When I lived in Kobe, Japan (which could be compared to Georgia in terms of climate), the women broke out the big sweaters and boots in October, but paired them with the shortest mini skirts you’ve ever seen in your life.  (Always with nude nylons, though, which often ruined the look for me. What is it that makes nude nylons so very creepy?)

      I wouldn’t be togged out that heavily unless the temps dropped below 0°F, and I’d still probably have my coat open. These hot-house flowers need to find/channel (if they’re actors they should have the wherewithal) their inner Midwesterner. Or wait until never-ending menopause strikes, and then there’ll be a swift reversion to lightweight wear!

      Reminds me of my first semester in law school in the mid-south 40 years ago when the temps “dropped” to 70 in the fall.  One of the Southern grad student young women in my suite was decked out in a wool maxi coat.  Having just arrived from Michigan I was astounded and couldn’t hide my amazement (or scorn).  I, of course, was probably in something sleeveless.

      • Now I am The Bee

        Tht’s funny.  I have a large wool coat from Germany that does not see the light of day until the temp is 10 degrees or colder.  Otherwise, unless it’s raining, I’m ins thick sweater and scarf when the temp is between 40 and 10.

      This camera-ready casual look comes off as trying too hard, and KH is on my Irrational Celebrity Hate List (and they’ve cast her as Stephanie Plum! Horrors!). I’m not a fan of jeans tucked into boots but I do love the color of this particular pair.

        You cannot be serious.  Katherine Heigl has been cast as Stephanie Plum?  That is cracktastic!  And horrible! It’s hard to imagine anyone LESS like the plucky bounty hunter.  So who have they cast as Ranger–Neil Patrick Harris???

        • Anonymous

          More on the movie from Janet Evanovich’s website:

          The movie is slated for release on January 27, 2012.  Katherine Heigl is cast as
          Stephanie, Jason O’Mara as Joe Morelli and Daniel Sunjata as Ranger. In
          addition, Sherri Shepard stars as Lula, Debbie Reynolds as Grandma Mazur, John
          Leguizamo as Jimmy Alpha, Patrick Fischler as Vinnie, Ana Reeder as Connie,
           Nate Mooney as Eddie Gazarra and Jack Erdie as Flat-Nosed Louis.  Janet sold
          the movie rights to One For the Money in 1993, and had no involvement
          or influence in the making of the movie…casting, directing, the script,
          editing,  etc.

          Debbie Reynolds as Grandma Mazer?  Not wacky enough (or old-lady skinny). This O’Mara guy is IRISH and 39; Mr. Sunjata is Irish, German, and African-American and 40.  Shouldn’t Ranger be quite clearly Latin?  Oh dear, oh dear.

            I’m thinking this is a movie to miss. You? This casting is appalling,* and I love my Plum books too much to have them ruined by Hollywood loons.

              I go to so few movies that this will be easy to pass on (appalling casting for sure) … and it may be my age showing, but my fossilized ‘mones don’t quiver at Mr. Sunjata in the slightest.   Can’t offhand think of a current young actor that meets my mental image of silent, strong, Latin, subtly amused Ranger in his Porsches, but that will be an interesting diversion while I do chores this weekend!

            • Sara__B

              I work at a public library, and for years patrons and I have been trying to cast the movie without much success. Ranger was always the hardest, but we could think of dozens of actresses to play Stephanie. And KH ends up getting the part. (They should have asked us at the library to do the casting!)

        I don’t know Ms. Heigl from bupkis, but I’ve read ALL of Janet Evanovich’s books (from One through Seventeen and the offshoots, though I see Eighteen has issued) about Stephanie from The Burg, and this actress doesn’t communicate the bounty hunter who eats doughnuts and Cluck-In-A-Bucket, hangs with Lula, the former ‘ho, pulls Grandma Mazer from her casket-opening ways at Stiva’s Funeral Home, or juggles Ranger and Joe Morelli.  Not to mention trying to corral Moondog and Cousin Vinnie, the bail bondsman.  ICK – here’s a link to a cover with Ms. Heigl as Stephanie. http://www.evanovich.com/?page_id=391  NOT what I envision Stephanie at all, and her hair is not wild or dark enough.  Major disappointment.

      Points taken that it doesn’t get cold enough to dress like this for Southern California. I don’t even like Katherine Heigl, but I will acknowledge she’s at least dressing stylishly, if over-dressed for the temperatures, and not just going out dressed in a tacky manner, like many “stars” do. She’s taking a Joan Crawford quote to heart: “I never go outside unless I look like Joan Crawford, the movie star. If you want to see the girl next door, go next door.”

      I realize I am gonna catch some grief for defending this gal, but I live in Southern California.  Over the last few days we have had Santa Ana winds more severe than we have seen in a decade.  In some parts of Southern California, they have been over 100mph.  So, even though it was probably in the 50′s that day, if that wind picked up, it would get pretty darn chilly.  I went Christmas shopping yesterday and I wish I had thought to take a coat and scarf like she is wearing. Now as a born and bred Southern Californian, I get that I am wimpy and thin blooded, and as daysi117 pointed out will look for any excuse to wear a beautiful coat but I think for once, our weather actually called for it.  Also, notice her friend at the car doesnt seem to be going too far from it’s interior.

      Well, it’s so nice that many of you are so hardy and can handle the lower temps so well. I’ve lived in SoCal all my life and I’m decked out like KH here when it gets into the 50s. Why? Because I’m freaking cold and dress accordingly. Saying it’s not cold enough to wear this kind of outfit is just lip service and does nothing to warm my bones. Think I’m soft or a wuss? My two smallest toes are usually numb from mid-December to February. Some people are just cold.  Sometimes in winter I’m dressed like the “normal woman” in this shot, but secretly, I’m wearing leggings or tights under my jeans to keep me toasty – and even my current pregnancy did not affect my “chilly” disposition. Besides, like one of the commenters mentioned below, if we only wore outfits like this when it dips down to the 30s or 40s, we’d never get to wear cute winter clothes. That being said, I think KH is trying too hard here.

      The sleeves of that coat are too short, and the shoulders look too big.  Just weird.  But those boots rock!

      Love her boots. Great color.

      Regarding LA folks and their definition of cold: I think if you’re used to warmer weather, anytime it drops 15 or more degrees below what you’re use to, you get cold. My sis lives in LA (I live in the Bay Area), and she always brings her wool coat, uggs, and scarf when she comes to visit, even if I dress in a light sweater in the same weather. She just can’t adjust to the colder weather that quickly.

      It is amusing to see somebody in LA dressed like this, however, she looks awfully good in that camel/cream combo up around her face and I love the boots, so what the hell, you know?  Thumbs up.  More problematic for me is the capital V Vulgar (oh yes, I used that word) Chanel bag.

        Yup.  She may indeed be cold enough for the outfit, but what’s the giant logo doing to keep her warm?

      Here in North Florida people are all in denial. They don’t like to acknowledge that it actually gets cold here, so it’ll be in the 30s and people will be in t-shirts and sandals, with just a little sweater.

      I feel a little silly when I’m dressed for the weather with an actual coat, maybe a scarf, socks and boots. But then I remind myself that they’re all cold, and then I just feel smug. And warm.

      I was just wondering if my aunt who lives in SoCal would ever get the chance to wear a small silky cowl if I knit one for her… guess I should be thinking of knitting a thick Aran sweater instead…

      we laugh at the New Yorkers who swan around the city wearing both a tank top and a scarf.

      And what about the women who go out wrapped up in coats and gloves and hats. . . but their legs are bare because, uh, why? Oh, yeah, bare legs are the style.  So it’s cold enough for a coat, etc., but stockings are verboten.

      But the other thing about NYers is the ones who pull out their down coats in the fall. Hats, down coats, gloves, scarves. . . in 55 degree weather.

      I live in California, and non celebrities wear stuff like this all the time.  This is a totally normal outfit, I don’t know why it’s a “to get photographed” — I probably saw at least 10 people this morning wearing jeans, boots, and a big coat.

      in her defense I have to say that the perception of temperature is definitely relative. 40-50F will make Canadians to go ahead and wear shorts and T-shirts.  But if the coldest you are used to is 40F then you will wear the coat, just like her here.  I’m coming from South America, where the coldest I used to get was maybe 35-40F, but after so many years in the East Coast, now if I go down there, I’ll be the one with the light sweater or coat, while the rest is wearing parkas, hats and gloves. It’s all about what your body is accustomed to.

      To be fair to LA, we just had winds up to 100mph here that knocked all our trees down and power is still out in some places. If we can’t get our heavy coats our for that, then when do we get to wear them? :(

      I grew up in Georgia and we wore our sweaters and wool skirts (otherwise known as our Back-to-School Clothes) as soon as it turned September 1, even if it was 90 degrees outside, so I am feeling Ms. Heigel here. It’s almost Christmas, darn it. Time for sweaters and boots, weather be dammed.

    • aimee_parrott

      Well, I doubt it was cold enough in LA to justify this get-up, but I’ve seen people here in San Diego wearing parkas when it’s 60 degrees outside.  I will say this though — I grew up in Massachusetts and I know from cold.  I’ve never worn a winter coat in SD.  But I have become more sensitive to cold, and find that I need sweaters in weather that used to be t-shirt weather for me.  Everything is relative.  The last time I went back to Massachusetts in winter I was never warm, once, the entire week that I was there.  Not even inside. 

      That said, she looks ridiculous.  So there.

      I just moved to LA and I think it’s hilarious how people don’t know how to dress for the weather. I recently saw a woman wearing shorts, fuzzy lined boots, a tank top, and a long, sleeveless knit vest. Yeah. In the Los Angelenos’ defense, it is sometimes difficult to figure out what to wear. This time of year I would normally be wearing a jacket, sweater, skirt, tights, boots, a hat, and a scarf. But here that would be way too much. But it’s not exactly t-shirt and jeans weather either. Gah. And everybody drives like they’ve just done their last crack rock and are gunning for their dealer.

      Don’t hate the scarf/tank look – it’s very versatile. Your shoulders might get cold – and viola – you have a wrap already with you! Or you might need an impromptu turban when your hair starts to frizz… so many uses!

      I hate to be pissy, but I believe she’s an ex-smoker. Poor circulation and a skinny butt make people cold. I know this simply because I’m neither, and my girlfriend is both. She’s always chattering away like a nekkid chihuahua; I, on the other hand, want air conditioning in a snowstorm.

      Also, can we talk about the sleeves on that coat? Why are they so short? Dry cleaning mishap? Or did she try to get away with machine washing?
      I have never seen 3/4 length sleeves on a heavy winter coat before. Those California folks sure are loopy. :P

      The people who sport heavy outerwear in 55 degree temps are the same ones who, when that temp is in April, are running around in shorts & bikini tops trying to get started on their tans.  Get a grip.  That being said, LOVE the boots.  Still annoyed that Ms. Heigl will be playing Stephanie Plum, however.

      At least she’s not wearing a Lands’ End parka and UGG (Ugh!) boots!!! I live up near the Twin Cities now, so I know cold, but I remember the days when I lived in Southern Arizona/Southern Cal, and when you’re not used to it, the low forties feel awfully cold. I’ve already pulled out my parka up here and the temps are in the 30s which will feel balmy come January and February. It’s all relative.

      It’s so nice that the coat police are on hand to tell people when it’s cold enough to wear one. It’s exhausting to have to gauge that for yourself and just wear what makes you feel comfortable. Please be sure to pitch in again when the weather warms up, so we don’t accidentally wear too many layers.

        Thank you. I find the weather sass here quite over the top. I am pretty trim and I wore something similar the other day when heading to work after those winds blew through my creaky, cracky old LA home all night. I was chilled to the bone until well into the afternoon. 

        Maybe she has a cold. Perhaps she is headed to an iced vodka bar. Possibly she is headed to her dentist’s office, where the AC is always blowing 45. I don’t like this gal either, but sheesh people!

      if it makes you feel any better, it was over eighty degrees over much of the last week. it’s a bit cooler now, say, 65 〫–but still not quite cold enough to wear that coat. if, that is, yr used to the weather back east. cos there is plenty of evidence that one’s appreciation of weather is subjective, ie: if youve lived in this seasonless place for decades you will find 40 〫cold. but it’s cos you have gotten used to its never dipping much below, apologies, seventy….. etc & ect. otoh, it may seem something between fun & exotic to live in a place that has no seasons but, in truth, it’s just kind of dull. if the idea is that it’s easier, though, yeah, thats probably true. but what it has in ease it loses in interest.

      I really don’t give a shit how cold anyone else thinks it needs to be for me to bust out the “cold weather” clothing.  Like someone else said, some of us are always cold.  My nephews are human furnaces and walk around in boxers and a wife beater in this god awful tree destroying windy cold weather.  I wear a t-shirt, a cardigan, and a coat with a knit cap.  And I don’t wear the summery dresses until the weather is regularly in the 80s.  Because anything below 70 is cold for me.  You might think I’m a lightweight for that, go ahead.  I’m not fussed.  But I don’t bitch like a baby when the weather hits 90.  That’s how I like it.  Hot and melty.  Dry or humid, I don’t give a god damn as long as it’s 80 and above.  

      I’ll bet you a dollar, all you “oh pfft, 40 is a nice spring day” people that you’d never survive an afternoon walk on a 90+ day in the Foothills.  A hat, a fan, and a full water bottle are all I need.  Air conditioning is for wimps.

      I think she must have gained a little weight and be feeling fat? (I AM NOT SAYING SHE IS FAT.) When I gain weight, I end up wearing my Big Coats more because a) I tend to gain weight in my upper arms and suddenly all my other outerwear is too tight in the sleeves/shoulders and b) because I feel like if I’m swathed in that shit my fat doesn’t show (this is a lie. You’re as big as you are, just wear clothes that fit you. Climbing off the soapbox).

      Wow, LA people sure are humorless about their weather, huh? The point here isn’t whether YOU feel cold when it’s 40, the point is whether Katherine Heigl is being a photograph hound for wearing this getup.

      It’s all about what you’re used to. When I went to grad school in Syracuse, NY, I’d go without a hat and gloves when temps were in the 20s. Now that I’ve been in LA for ten years, I wear boots and a sweater when the high is 60. I wouldn’t assume Heigl is attention whoring.

      Dear Katherine: Ok, first of all, I will forever irrationally dislike you, so you probably don’t want advice from me. BUT just an FYI- there are plenty of stores who sell coats (and tops!) with sleeves long enough to accommodate us longer-limbed gals. If even a non-overpaid celeb type like myself can locate them, I’m sure you will have no problem. Please look into it.

      Why is she talking to this woman?  Is she asking the woman for a ride to the gas station?  I am sad that she just can’t seem to dress appropriately for the weather, which ends up making her look silly.  I live in Utah.  She looks straight out of a Park City Rich Wives Bunko Card Game.  (This in suggests I don’t like her much, as I hate those PCRWBG people).  Please.  Wear a sweater.  (I adore her boots, however).
